Indian Super League, Round 6
Hyderabad FC play their second consecutive home game as they take on Mumbai City FC at Tilak Maidan in an early kick-off today. Here are a few interesting numbers ahead of this game…
While Hyderabad FC have conceded just four goals with some staunch defensive displays, Mumbai City have the best defensive record so far this season, having conceded just three goals all season. Surely, this game is a battle of the backlines.
With just three yellow cards in their first five games, Hyderabad FC are the most disciplined side in the competition, going into this game. No other team has seen less than 10 bookings, while MCFC have seen 18 yellow cards, more than any team in the competition.
503 passes per game
While Hyderabad FC have completed 2020 passes in their first five games, at an average of 404 passes per game, Mumbai City have completed 3015 passes in all, averaging 503 passes per game, almost 100 more than their immediate opponents.
Hyderabad FC have one of the most exciting attacks in the league this season. They have registered 79 attempts in their five games, five more than Mumbai City have managed in their six games this season.
Aridane Santana, HFC’s top goal scorer and Adam le Fondre, MCFC’s top goal scorer, are both tied at four goals apiece. The duo are a couple of goals short of Nerijus Valskis at the top of the goalscoring charts and will want to reduce the gap in this game.
